Sources please?

I believe the origin of this rumor is the fact that all even numbered team automatically qualify to REGISTER for the championships. (See Open Teams Letter - Championship Changes (http://www.usfirst.org/2002comp/FRCLetters.htm) on FIRST's web site.) All teams -- including even numbered teams -- are required to register for a regional competition before registering for the Championship. Whether any team (whether qualifying by virtue of posessing an even team number or by satisfying one of the other requirements) can AFFORD to attend the championship is a wholly different question.:(

Well, of course you have to pay for it. But my message was that all even teams were elagable, if you are #1 seed or last place. My source is a friend in my team who knows everything before everyone else. If this proves false, I will put that here.

Erm . . . you'd probably won't to time travel back several months, and then post this :)

Then, well, you'd be a-ok...

The letter on FIRST website pretty much explains the whole qualification process... and that process started a lot of discussions in this forum. Since you weren't here before, you probably haven't seen the 20 threads people started for talking about this new qualification FIRST started using.

So, follow this link: http://66.78.36.159/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=699

for a summary of all those discussions. On a side note, many such newsletters will appear in the "Feature Announcements & Forum Help", under sub forum: "Bulletins and Newsletters", when the 6 week starts. There will probably be a final test launch at the end of this month, when my finals are over ;), and finish the newsletter title contest! The official ones will start around the kickoff weekend of the 6 weeks.

The two old newsletters aren't visible to most people because their default setting only show posts in the past 45 days. So go in there and set the "from last 45 days" to "from the beginning", and look at the threads with "newsletter" in the title.

It is totally true as my team 222 is alredy registered and raising money to go.
